LIVEWIRE
White House Eliminates Major Cybersecurity Position
By Kate Riga | May 16, 2018 10:07 am

The White House has eliminated the cyber coordinator role, an Obama-era position key to developing a cohesive policy for the federal government to fight back against hacking and other digital threats, according to a Tuesday Politico report.

Per Politico, National Security Adviser John Bolton floated the idea of eliminating the position last week, and an email sent to staffers Tuesday confirmed that the position would be ended in an effort to “streamline authority.”

The coordinator reportedly dealt with such timely issues as election security and digital warfare. Some have voiced concern that eliminating the position will only make America even more vulnerable to cyber attacks.

What this does is make anti-Trump USians vulnerable to hacking/interference by the Trumpettes.

Why is this Chinese company suddenly such a threat? It's been operating into the U.S. for years if not decades. American companies provide many of the parts for the Chinese company meaning Americans get jobs. Grabem, of course, wants them back in business because his $400 loan depends on it but I'm surprised at the resistance from the rest of the GOP. Don't they know he will give them a nasty nickname if they don't cuddle up to his every whim.
